Energy-saving is a critical issue for almost all kinds of portable devices. In this paper, we consider the design of energy-saving protocols for wireless ad-hoc network (WANETs) that allow ad-hoc node to select most suitable route which has enough energy and short distance with minimum number of queue length packet. The basic input parameters to evaluate energy efficient route lifetime are queue length packet, distance and energy. Based on the comprehensive simulation using MATLAB and NS2, it is observed that proposed routing protocol contributes to the performance improvements in terms of energy efficient routing based on three input parameters and one output parameter. Finally a comparison will be done with existing protocols and the simulation results shows that the protocol is quite efficient in regard both parameters.
